Christmas crafting

Hello all, Mary Ellen here.

How have you been? I’ve been AWOL for a while-busy with Christmas preparations. I’m sure you all understand. One of the things I’ve been up to involves Mod Podge. Yes that goopy stuff from the old decoupage crafting craze is still around and going strong. It’s quite amazing what you can get to stick with it. Did you know there is a Mod Podge made especially for fabric? Me either. I found this review (click here) by accident at the site for Craft Test Dummies. After reading what it has to say about the improvement in the fabric texture, I think I will check out whether any of our local big box stores, with my 40% off coupon, have any of the fabric Mod Podge in stock. I do quite a bit of crafting with fabric–making fabric flowers and embellishments in particular—and if it performs as well as the tester says then I’m in. I love using my Big Shot die cutter, and will be using our guild’s cutter more in the future. (Update on that guild cutter coming soon)

By the way if you do crafts or DIY projects of any kind, you should check out the Craft Test Dummies website (click here). All sorts of gadgets and craft supplies get honest reviews. In addition, there are lots of project ideas and tutorials. Being a gadget lover, I have purchased so many over the years–but not with 100% satisfaction. The more I’ve visited their site, the more I’m a convert. I will be checking out more of my possible purchases with them before I make the spending plunge. Hopefully I won’t be buying any more lemons. Anyone want a strip cutter machine?

    Love the craft test dummies site! The luggage tag and handle rap made out of an old necktie is ingeniuos. I’ll have to try that one. I’m also busy with last minute gift making. I always wait til the last minute, silly me. But I do some of my best work under pressure.

    I have a strip cutter too and it is one of my poorer choices. I wonder if it could work on anything other than fabric! Thanks for the site tip, I sure could use it.
